Open May through September, we are a full - service family resort located just one mile south of Itasca State Park. We are nestled on the north shore of Little Mantrap Lake on a quiet peninsula. Little Mantrap is an excellent fishing lake and its crystal clear waters are a nature lover's delight. Listen to the loons call, watch the sun set with the eagles flying overhead and you'll soon see why so many families make Little Norway their personal vacation destination.

Great resort - quiet and quaint with great hosts and a welcoming atmosphere. We have enjoyed this resort for over 10 years and always look forward to coming back. Located just a few minutes from Lake Itaska and a short drive into Park Rapids the access to parks, shopping and lakes is wonderful.

We stayed at LNR about 10 years ago when our kids were little. They remember it as one their best summer vacations ever! We decided to come back again this year and it didn’t disappoint. The newly remodeled A frame cabin was very nice and roomy enough for our 5 adults. The lake is perfect with such clear water and the week was fun and relaxing! Hoping to come back again before another 10 years go by.

Our family had booked 4 cabins at Little Norway Resort for 10 days in May 2022. We have done this several times over the years, always coming back to the same cabins and the resort we love. The cabins are always clean and the owners are wonderful friends. We look forward to our stay every time and we are never disappointed while we are there. There are many local attractions but I just like to fish off the dock and listen to the loons. The price is amazingly affordable and I recommend this as a vacation to anyone who loves peace and quiet.

Like many other guests, our family has been repeat vacationers at LNR for many years. This year marked about 25 years. Chuck and Sissel, and now Ben and Steph, have been wonderful hosts over the years. We love being part of the LNR family!

This resort is the perfect place for a family lake getaway. We've gone over ten summers in a row and each summer we have so much fun! The cabins are impeccably clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, the beach is GORGEOUS and so well-kept, and the views are breathtaking. There are many things to do within a 20-minute drive, but most weeks when we are at Little Norway Resort we choose to just relax and enjoy the week on property.

We stayed at Little Norway Resort the week of June 19 - June 26. We were 100% satisfied with everything about the resort. But the srongest positive is the level of customer service the owners practice and implement. They were very friendly and willing to do anything to help us out - including letting us use their garage when our back window of our car shattered and resucing us when our pontoon ran out of gas in the middle of the lake at dusk. The whole resort is well-managed and clean. I especially loved the hot tub. If you are looking for an excellet small to medium-sized resort on a beautiful, smallish lake in northern MN you will not be disappointed! We give the Little Norway 5 out of 5 stars and look forward to come back again in the years to come.

We have been coming to this resort from Denver for the past eight years. We just spent a week at the resort. The staff is friendly, the cabins are in excellent shape, there are many activities, and the lake is perfect (small so not too many other boats). I can't recommend this resort enough - it is worth the 1,000 mile drive for us. We have stayed at other resorts in the past but keep coming back here.

This was our first time staying at LNR and we loved it!. The cabins were clean and well furnished, especially the kitchen. Loved that there were LOTS of serving pieces and a great assortment of pots and pans. A mixer, even! The swimming beach was safe and shallow for our littles and the docks provided safe places for bobber fishing. The lower level of the lodge is a game room. Pretty outdated games but our littles didn't mind. We loved and appreciated the toddler play room adjacent to the arcade for our youngest grandchild. The staff were very friendly and responsive. A day trip to Itasca was excellent as it is just minutes away. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
